Rough Trade Albums of the Year 2017 No: 3
Utopia is the ninth studio record from Bjork, and Rough Trade has the only colored version worldwide. It's an album about love, set in a world that is living in politically uncertain times.
The new album is another classic from the good lady and her current crew of music makers. It takes in everything from piano and strings to drum machines, beats, bleeps, harps, flutes and samples. The perfect example of how future music can be made by always pushing the boundaries but never forgetting the song. It's another organic and mesmerizing album that unfolds with repeated plays. Simply outstanding - Bjork always is.
